Cannabis cookies, lollipops, supplements and more are popping up everywhere and claim to help almost anything that ails you. However, which ailments can really be helped with cannabis products?
Some ailments and disorders have conclusive evidence that cannabis can help while others have limited and insufficient evidence.
The FDA has ranked the health claims for us. Those ailments that have limited evidence include cancer, glaucoma, dementia, IBS, stress and anxiety.
